The first of three large tents to temporarily house hundreds of homeless people is scheduled to open Friday, and the people behind the plan stress that these will be far more than shelters. Dozens of people will work inside the tents to provide basic services and security, but many others will be tasked with helping people find housing and overcome issues that contribute to homelessness.
